The Coffin of Thutmoses III: A Case Study of Evidence of Reuse of a Royal Coffin in the DeB 320 Royal Cache


Abstract: Coffins are important social documents, but they are difficult to document, photograph, and analyze. For the past ten years, Dr. Cooney has been systematically examining human reactions to social crises, specifically focusing on material adaptations evident within an ideological context and documenting coffins from Dynasty 18 to 22. This research is the first systematic study of funerary arts reuse and theft within the field of Egyptology and the first thorough photographic documentation of these coffins. In this lecture Dr. Cooney will offer a case study of the royal coffin of Thutmoses III, discovered in 1881 in the DeB 320 Royal Cache, and discuss the evidence of reuse she has documented on this coffin.
